Lucid Motors undercuts Tesla with pricing for new Air

• https://newatlas.com, Scott Collie

Although the company showed off a completed car in December last year, we weren't given any info about pricing or finalized performance specs. Finally, three months later, we have the full picture.

Initial speculation suggested the Air EV would sell for well over $100,000, but it turns out that speculation was wildly inaccurate. Pricing for a base Air will start at $60,000 but that figure doesn't include the $7,500 Federal tax credit applied to electric cars sold in the US.

Even in the most basic trim, the car isn't exactly what you'd call stripped-back. It'll be rear-drive and have 400 horsepower (298 kW) on tap, with a 240-mile (386-km) range from the battery. All the hardware necessary for autonomous driving will also be fitted, but there is no word on whether it'll actually be active as standard, or whether you'll need to pay more to use it.
